Living history: Wasserman's Flowers & Gifts is a story about Muskegon's past—and future
The great-great grandfather of Angie and Troy, Louis came to the U.S. in 1872 and first settled in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he met and married Amelia. Together, they moved in 1874 to Muskegon, where Louis worked as a tailor while cultivating his passion during off hours: his garden. Encouraged by his wife to leave tailoring and pursue his dream of working with flowers, Louis built what’s believed to be Muskegon’s first greenhouse on the corner of Irwin Avenue and Terrace Street. As Louis grew and tended to the rows of plants, Amelia would sell the flowers that were quickly embraced by the city. Wasserman’s makes one of its first media appearances in a Muskegon Chronicle section titled “Local Events” published on May 21, 1886. In the sea of text that were newspapers in the 1800s, the Chronicle gives a rundown of a variety of events in the city, including the funeral for five-year-old Elsa Kanitz, H.B. Smith opening a new grocery store on Jackson Street, and frustrations over a blustery day. (“The South Wind has been enjoying the fun of kicking up a dust today, but he’s the only chap that enjoys it. Pedestrians have found it extremely disagreeable going about the streets collecting sawdust and splinters in their optics,” the newspaper writes.) In the midst of these details, the newspaper describes a welcome scene at Wasserman’s. “A large cactus plant in full bloom at Wasserman’s flower store presents a gorgeous and beautiful appearance,” the Chronicle writes in its one sentence dedicated to the store that day.A Muskegon Ch...

Flower Arrangements & Cutting Gardens
Park, Gracie Mansion, and more. How did your calling get its start and evolve?Tim Steinhoff: I’m the son of dairy farmers and was raised in western Wisconsin. In the era in which I grew up, only elderly ladies grew flower gardens, which they referred to as “yards.” I was interested in gardening and in flowers from the time I was five years old. It started out as a way for me to get mail—seed catalogs! I became a seed catalog and plant junkie very early on. By the time I was 16, I was growing hybrid tea roses.
My paternal grandmother was the only one who encouraged me and the only one around me who was interested in gardening. I knew few other gardeners until college. My parents didn’t want a son who was a college-educated farmer; they wanted my brothers and me to have more opportunities. I had always been interested in politics and world affairs, so I majored in international relations. The week I graduated from college, I went to Europe for the first time, with a group of journalism students studying the European press. When I saw the Chelsea Flower Show in London, I was a goner!
I moved to New York City when I was 23. I sought out any exposure to horticulture; the Brooklyn Botanical Garden influenced me greatly. To create a professional resume, I volunteered at various organizations. When I was 25, I became the gardener at a newly created one-third-acre public garden in the West Village, next to the Jefferson Market Library. There, I grew 150 roses (25 varieties) along with a multitude of other plants. I could harvest armloads of healthy roses due to the abundant sulfur emissions from cars; sulfur meant there was almost no black spot or mildew. No Japanese beetles as well!

At the time, there weren’t a lot of horticulture jobs in New York City like there are now. I invented myself as a professional horticulturist. My first full-time position was as the executive director of the Green Guerillas (which is still around), working with community vegetable gardens ...Sep 8, 2017

Brian Knope purchased the property 17 years ago. The lot slopes toward the sidewalk and consisted of grass. Knope credits his friend Jake Johnson with the encouragement to begin the garden, assisting with planning and with providing much of the labor involved in the creation of a secret garden behind a rail fence. They brought in rocks to form a rock garden on the slope in front of the fence, which contains hostas and sedum. There is a half barrel at each side of the sidewalk leading to the house. They contain annuals.The rail fence continues around the perimeter of the yard. Perennial beds are in front of it as well as along the sidewalk and surrounding the house. You will find vegetables and several water features, as well as many other decorative items tucked into the flowers.Along the back of the house is a variety of shrubs including several roses that Knope got from his grandmother. One of these is a Japanese rose which has glossy, dark green leaves and red blooms early in spring. A two-story trump vine can also be seen ther... (Wausau Daily Herald)Sep 8, 2017
